Collins, Murkowski Introduce Abortions Up to Birth Bill

Senators Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski, the two lone pro-abortion Republicans in the U.S. Senate, introduced legislation Tuesday to force states to legalize abortions up to birth nationwide.

House Passes Bill to Legalize Abortions Up to Birth

Together with two Democrat lawmakers, Collins and Murkowski said they believe Americans need a federal law to “undo the damage” of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health, the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in June that overturned Roe v. Wade.

Their bill, which is unlikely to pass, would force states to legalize abortions for basically any reason without restriction up to viability and allow abortions up to birth for any widely-defined “health” reason. It also prohibits states from restricting contraception.

The legislation is similar to the so-called Women’s Health Protection Act, a radical pro-abortion bill that passed the House twice but failed in the Senate. Collins, a Maine Republican, voted against the bill because she said it would jeopardize conscience protections for pro-life medical workers.

Her new bill preserves those protections, something she highlighted to portray her legislation as more moderate.

“By reinstating—neither expanding nor restricting—the longstanding legal framework for reproductive rights in this country, our bill would preserve abortion access along with basic conscience protections that are relied upon by health care providers who have religious objections.” Collins said in a statement.

U.S. Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Virginia, another lead sponsor, also asserted that the bill is reasonable, describing it as a “bipartisan compromise” on abortion.

But their plan to “codify Roe” actually is extreme and out of touch with most Americans. Roe made America one of the most un-restrictive abortion-on-demand countries in the world. The 1973 ruling forced states to legalize the killing of unborn babies for any reason up to viability and allowed abortions up to birth.
